Elizabeth Ruach the founder and CEO of Myofitness is a professional athlete herself and is very passionate about helping other athletes achieve their dreams and goals in their chosen sport.

Achieving goals at any level of a sport/competition is a combination of teamwork, with your coach/s, your myotherapist, physiologist, nutrients, sports doctor and most importantly your friends. All of these professionals and friendship groups play an equally important role in achieving success.
Our practitioners have a comprehensive knowledge and understanding of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology to determine a treatment plan.
We take precise history and perform a thorough assessment and postural analysis in order to determine exactly where the problem, tension and or injury is within the muscular system with the aim of eliminating the root cause, not just the symptoms.
Playing or training on a regular basis can be very intense on your body and it is absolutely essential to take the necessary steps to recover between sessions.
